4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Methodology: Participation during regular classes (theoretical or practical lessons, technical visits, and through Ilias Platform (University of Jaén virtual campus-online) will be taken into account. At the beginning of our course, students must incorporate into a team group (3 or 4 persons per group) and
argue with professor the aim of their personal or team work, of course refers to one of the topic of our course. Finally, students will expose their own research and team work. One final exam will be done at the end of the semester about theoretical and practical aspect defined. Besides, during the semester are arranged several technical visits. In order to enroll the students in this course, all students must be register inside Ilias Platform as soon as possible.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

  • Student participation will make up to 20% of the final mark.
  • Final exam will be about theoretical and practical aspect defined during the course and will make up to 40 % of the final mark.
  • Oral presentation will be worth up to 40% of the mark (two different tasks will be proposed: a personal work and a team-work that they must be defended during or at the end of our first semester).
